Hey New World,
I wanted to start off this post with an opportunity I had to miss. LinkedIn is a very useful social media tool. It’s excellent for networking. If you don’t have an account, you should really think about getting one. Well, I hope I am not overstepping myself here, but I have to tell you this story. Yesterday, I was home, due to the “snow storm”. I look in my email and noticed that I had a message. It talked about an opportunity to shoot, today. This was for HER DC Life Magazine. Unfortunately, I had a previous engagement. I was able to recommend someone to the magazine, but I sorely wished that I could have done it.
Okay, so back to the post.
Remember, from the last post, I stated that I was inspired by the photographers group, I was in. Well, it also inspired me to apply for a dream of mine. At the very least, start it. I have begun the process of applying for a press pass for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. I have always wanted to do this, but knew I had to be to a certain “level” in order to this. I knew I wasn’t to that level, yet. Hanging with the group, help me to build my confidence level. Of course, I haven’t finished it, yet. I heard, from a friend of mine, that the press pass will cost and I would like to get this when I have extra to play with. Also, there is a huge part of me, which is scared to do it. The fact that I will be coming in as my own media outlet, I guess, can be either heralded or discriminated, depending upon the person. Not to mention, the “snub” level may be very high. None the less, I need to do this. Networking opportunities should be very high, with great potential. Not to mention, the bragging rights you have with it! I would be like “Hey, I don’t need to hook on to anyone else, I’M LADY TRE’! I get into all the hot shows!” and stuff of that nature.
I need to stop! However, I am going to wrap up my application and this post today!
